Dear all, I just need a bit of advise.
I had my mitral valve replaced on the 8th of November and I am on warfarin for the rest of my life.
A part from week 2 after surgery, my INR is never been in the desired range.
At the beginning maybe because I was taking antibiotics due to a chest infection, but now is over a month i am not taking anymore antibiotics and it is still not in range. It should be beteween 2.5 and 3.5 but sometimes goes even below 2 and the highest it ha been is 2.2
I know that with some ppl it rates time, but mine seems going lower when I take a bigger dose of warfarin
At the moment I am taking 11mg daily.
Has anyone in this forum experienced anything similar?
I also heard about a different type of warfarin called Sintrom.dit anyone tried it?
Thank you in advance for your help
